This is a German hard paste porcelain tiny demitasse creamer or cream pitcher. The maker is Meissen. The date is circa 1814 to 1860.
The pitcher is 3 1/8" high to the top of the handle and 3 3/8" wide from spout-to-handle.
The ground is black. The flowers are designed from the white underlying glaze and etched with gold for detail. There is a spray of flowers on each side of the tiny pitcher. The handle has more gold detail. The rim is trimmed in gold.
The inside and the bottom are glazed white.
There are a few spots of black ground missing. There are no nicks, chips, cracks or crazing.
The bottom has a blue underglaze mark of two pommel swords crossing, and this mark corresponds to one used between 1814 and 1860.
